Kirsten Dunst's 3-Carat Engagement Ring From Jesse Plemons

Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons are officially engaged, so "Friday Night Lights" fans can rest easy knowing Landry Clarke is happy.


The 34-year-old actress confirmed the engagement when she showed off her new ring to photographers and friends at Paris Fashion Week on Monday.


Pretty, right? Guess how much it costs?

Hint: It's a whole freakin' lot.

Different reports are saying different things, but diamond experts agree the ring looks to be at least two carats, probably three.

Page Six interviewed a specialist from Forevermark Diamonds who went with two carats. That would make the price about $75,000.

But Us Weekly interviewed a different diamond specialist who thinks the ring is actually three carats, which would make it closer to $80,000.

Finally, the bridal editor of The Cut agrees the ring is three carats, and probably around $80,000.


That's two out of three, so I'm going with $80,000.

Damn. Guess that "Spider-Man" money is still coming through, huh?

Seriously, $80,000 is an INSANE amount of money.

I mean, I guess if you have the money, good for you, but I just don't get dropping that much cash on an arguably useless item.

Here's a list of things of thing I could do with $80,000 before buying a single shiny rock (before tax, because I'm not doing that math, sorry):

  1. 26,666 Crunchwrap Supremes at Taco Bell. That's one Crunchwrap a day for 73 years. Yeah, that sounds like the way I want to die.
  2. 94 of the iPhone 7s, the 256 GB edition. Think of all the podcasts I could download!
  3. 8,000 subscriptions to Spotify Premium. I'd give out the password to anyone I might ever encounter ever and never have to hear a Spotify ad in the middle of a ~moment~ again.
  4. About 160 roundtrip plane tickets to anywhere I wanted. (Assuming each plane ticket is around $500.)
  5. Go to 5,333 movies in New York City. That's one movie a day for 14 years.
  6. Have all my laundry picked up and delivered for the rest of my life.
  7. Eat 800 $100 dinners.
  8. Never dig through the clearance rack at Kohl's again.
  9. Get 1,333 hour-long massages.
  10. Donate to charity or whatever. I guess.

But hey, a shiny rock is nice, too.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
